Kwadwo Asamoah Reveals Juventus Teammates Fighting For Veteran Goalie Buffon To Win the UEFA Champions League

Juventus left-back Kwadwo Asamoah says helping legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon to win the UEFA Champions League this season is the motivation behind their performance.

The Old Lady of Italian football stormed Wembley Stadium and silenced thousands of English fans who had hoped to see Tottenham qualify for the last 8 of this year’s Champions League.

Two second-half goals from Argentine duo Gonzalo Higuain and Paolo Dybala ensured progression for the Italian despite Korean Son giving the home side a first-half lead.

The result was a bitter pill to swallow for the English side given they were the best side when the teams met in the first leg in Turin.

Ghana’s Kwadwo Asamoah and 34-year-old Stephan Lichtsteiner were the difference as the game took a positive turn for the Italians after their introduction in the second half.

The Ghanaian widely reported in the Italian media to be on his way out of the club at the end of the season spoke of the desire of the team to help Buffon bow out in grand style.

.@Asabob20: – We are going to fight to the end [for Buffon]. We are so happy for him.
